Great shortcakes to use for Chocolate-Covered Strawberry Shortcake or even Bananas Foster Shortcake (both of these posted separately to be used with this recipe. Both of these recipes are from Cuisine at Home Magazine.

These shortcakes are very good. Not too heavy with enough sweetness. Some I used for Recipe #361067, and some we just ate alone. I didn't change a thing and they came out perfect. Made and reviewed for PRMR, sorry it took soooo long. Thanks! :)
